my only Reds post '07

Ken Griffey Jr - SchrockStar §
I haven't spoken here much about the Reds, but they deserve a 20-minute blogging. First off, I want to thank them for providing the smidge of interest I still have in baseball... Yankees/BoSox don't do it for me, I'd rather go to a bar and watch it.
► Secondly, Griffey had his best year (30 HR, 100 RBI) since his Reds debut campaign in '00. No player in baseball is more loved than Junior, and I couldn't be happier he's a Redleg.
► Finally: Phillips, Keppinger, Encarnacion and Votto shone bright as infielders plus Hamilton and Bruce in the OutField and I can be renewed again as a fan. Hopper and Dunn will be the weak joints but the Big Red Machine could come alive. Of course, that also depends on who will be in the rotation w/ Arroyo and Harang (Shearn? Belisle? Bailey? Cueto?) to get us into the playoffs. Remember, the Reds play in the shifty NL Central where division winner takes league crown too. As long as they're improving the front office and roster, things are good.

Veteran OFs + talented IFs + 2 Aces + 2 closers = World Series

Anyone who watches baseball knows the Reds bullpen needs improvement; will 2008 be the year?

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp
